By Patricia Diane Brooks NO!! THE PEOPLE THAT BUY FROM AMAZON IS THE REASON HE HAS THAT MUCH MONEY AND HE IS ENTITLED TO HAVE THE MONEY!! WHAT HE DOES WITH IT IS NONE OF ANYONE'S BUSINESS!! I DO DETECT A LITTLE BIT OF JEALOUSY THAT HE DOES HAVE THAT MUCH MONEY, BUT MY FEELING IS THAT GOD HAS BLESSED HIM WELL. I AM SURE THAT HE DOES DONATE TO CHARITIES AND IF HE DOESN'T SHARE HIS WEALTH WITH PEOPLE LESS FORTUNATE THAN HIMSELF THEN LEAVE THAT TO GOD!!

By William Dykeman jesus was a socialist and would kick bezos out of the temple with a big stick
am i jealous/ i honestly dont think so, i hate him, i really think people like him should be given two choices trun over 99% of their ill gotten loot or face a firing squad.. it goes far beyond mere jealous, i hate people like him, they are no different than the old robber barons or slave owners.. they are criminals and deserve death.. should we we put a gun to their heads and take all their sh&6 and redistribute it to the masses.. hell yes! welcome to the revolution baby

By William Dykeman jealous??? maybe, but blind hatred would be more accurate, i dont want a penny of his money not one penny i want it all taxed and given to schools hospitals and roads.. it does not belong to him it belongs to society

By Mark Tracey You have gone beyond jealousy into insane rage.
If your plan had been followed since the beginning of human existence we would have killed all the exceptional, the hard workers the thinkers and innovators and we would be living in hovels looking for the next person that had found a way to get one extra root to eat so you could kill them.

By William Dykeman we never should have climbed out of the trees, no i take that back, we never should have left the ocean.. i think mankind was happierand more at peace with the world when we were small bands of wandering hunters that lived to be about 25 to 30 enough time to do the important things and make room for the next genration, kife is pretty pointless anyways.. but all these great ideas like cars atom bombs etc are just destroying gods creation.. i think if we all lived communally like the amish.. that would be a much better life

By Mark Tracey Your feeling this way because you have no purpose or meaning to your life, search and find that purpose and you will find happiness regardless if you lived 100,000 years ago or today.
You have choices, perhaps you have to reavaluate the past choices and go in a different direction. I faced this dilemma much earlier in my life, but it’s never to late.

By Mark Tracey What I know of them does not draw me to deeper inspection of them.
You cannot make a comment without an insult, not a good way to change minds or influence others.

By Grover Syck He should pay his warehouse workers better.
That much money in one persons hands is not only obscene, it is dangerous.
